The Fire Within

“Success is not the result of spontaneous combustion. You must first set yourself on fire.”

“Success is not the result of spontaneous combustion. You must first set yourself on fire.” So if you want to be succesful always set yourself on fire and don;t wait for someone else to 'set fire' to you and lead to spontaneous combustion. If you want to be succesful in in Life, work or in whatever you do always set yourself on fire and find your own success.

What is success for you?

Success - That can be different for different people. Some people find material possessions as a measure of their success, for some others it may be the position or recognition. So find what exactly make u feel successful. Fine out how focused you are on success. Only if you are clear about your goal and you are focused on your goal you can achieve it. Then work towards it as if its your last day of the life.

How would it be if you were driving that success rather than waiting for it? What changes do you notice in how you do things and how you feel about things? We humans tend to be focused on working towards happiness and success and assume that until it comes along we have to spend time being unhappy, suffering or struggling.

The truth is that things happen much easier and more readily if we don’t struggle, suffer or assume unhappiness. Real success comes to you much easily if you work for your success and put yourself on fire and keep focus on the goal.

So don’t wait or worry… Start now… Set yourself on Fire

Mumbai Terror Attacks

The November 2008 Mumbai attacks were a series of coordinated terrorist attacks across Mumbai, India's financial capital and largest city. The attacks began on 26 November 2008 and ended on 29 November 2008 when Indian security forces, in Operation Black Tornado, regained control of all attack sites.

Eight of the attacks took place at sites in South Mumbai : the Chhatrapati Shivaji Terminus, the Oberoi Trident, the Taj Mahal Palace & Tower, Leopold Cafe, Cama Hospital, the Orthodox Jewish-owned Nariman House, the Metro Cinema,and a lane behind the Times of India building behind St. Xavier's College.There was also an explosion at the Mazagaon docks in Mumbai's port area. A possible tenth incident involved a taxi blast at Vile Parle near the airport, but it is uncertain whether this was connected to the other nine attacks.

By the early morning of 28 November, all sites except for the Taj Mahal Palace had been secured by police and security forces. An action by India's National Security Guards on 29 November resulted in the conclusion of the Taj Mahal Palace encounter, ending all fighting in the attacks.
Initially, a previously unknown organization called the Deccan Mujahideen claimed responsibility.Later, Azam Amir Kasav, the single terrorist who was captured alive, disclosed that the attackers were members of Lashkar-e-Taiba, the Pakistan-based militant organization, considered a terrorist organization by India, the United States, the United Kingdom, among others. However, no official attribution of responsibility has been made by the Indian Government.
The attacks drew widespread condemnation across the world.
